The chev 789 was built on a C6 chassis
" supposted" to be the best of 57, 58, 59 Chevy all together.
These and cars like them , no matter how well built , seem to alway fall into the" just because you can doesn't mean you should" category
Without a doubt its BEST angle. Poor thing was simply out of scale, and either the nose and tail smaller, or the donor bigger. The whole experiment would have been pulled off more effectively using a '60's A- or even '80's G-body.
I will never understand people that do these "modifications". If you want that look then go buy a real one! Maybe they can't afford it but that's not the cars fault! The car ends up being one of a kind and absolutely worthless. It's a damn shame.
If the seller wasn't asking an enormous price for it ($50K if I recall), then I would have bought it just to save it from itself and turn it back into a respectable PPV. I mean they are fairly rare here.
